Sometimes it can be so simple for us to ignore our mental health, put other things ahead of it, or wait until other things get better. It may also appear to be overly vast and difficult. Yet it isn’t.
Since October 10 is the World Mental Health Day, it is an encouragement for us to take some time on this day to think about our mental health, to consider how we are feeling and what we can do to take care of ourselves both now and in the future.
To help you get started, here are some great things you can do today:
MAKE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH A PRIORITY
We must improve mental health services so that the complete range of mental health requirements is satisfied by a network of locally based, easily accessible, reasonably priced, and high-quality services and supports. The correct care and social inclusion are still hampered by stigma and discrimination, but we can all do our part to raise awareness of the preventative mental health measures that are most effective, and World Mental Health Day is a chance for us to do so together. We picture a society in which everyone has the same chance to enjoy mental health and to exercise their human rights, that mental health is recognized, promoted, and protected, and that everyone has access to the mental health care they require.
